You missed the parts where Francis and I suggested about testing against
nginx.org and/or nginx.com websites.
Is those reply correctly, the nginx product is definitely not the source of
the trouble.
I could also provide you with domains I serve with nginx, which do not use
any sort of user-agent filtering, through private channels, if necessary.

​Stuff like common rulesets or IDS tend to 'auto-configure' products with
rules (which then might be shared) to the problem would still not come from
nginx itself.​
